The Tale of Samulnori is an exciting new work created in collaboration between the innovative Australian company Legs On The Wall and South Korea’s AsiaNow, combining traditional and contemporary acrobatics, multimedia and live music.

Inspired by a Korean fable, The Tale of Samulnori tells the story of a peaceful land sent suddenly into turmoil when a dark cloud of pollution arrives, bringing confusion and despair to the people. Four children are sent to the corners of the earth where they must convince a guardian to hand over a treasure – a rare and precious musical instrument which, when played in harmony, will restore peace.
